Preserving Family Ties for Siblings in Foster Care
In recent years, child welfare agencies have placed increasing emphasis on preserving and maintaining sibling relationships for children in foster care. The July 2005 issue of Children and Youth Services Review is devoted entirely to this topic. Much of the research shows a distinct difference in outcomes for children who are placed with at least one sibling on such dimensions as the stability of placements, mental health and socialization, and dealing with the trauma of separation from the family.
